There is a growing population at the intersection of aging and disability who increasingly rely on old community service systems for care; systems that currently cannot handle the increase in demand and the crossing of the care-boundaries that have been set-up between the aging and those with disability. In response to this need, Michelle Putnam has edited this volume to reflect the current research and conferences, facilitate collaboration across service networks, and encourage movement toward more effective service policies. Professional stakeholders evaluate the bridges and barriers to crossing network lines, the 2002-2004 Missouri case study identifying facilitators and barriers to working across aging and disability service networks is included and examined, and a chapter on current websites, agencies, and coalitions provides the much needed tools to bring collaboration into practice. With contributions from those on the fore-front of these issues, ""Aging and Disability"" will provide a basis for understanding why our aging and disability networks have so long been separated and what we can do to close that gap so that our elderly populations of those with disability and those aging into disability are provided the care and service they need to live in dignity.
